engagement session

San Francisco Engagement with Emily and Jon

How can you say no when you get a call to travel to San Francisco to shoot one crazy adventure filled engagement session! Well after talking over locations with Emily and Jon, we decided to go all out! We started with a sunrise shoot right at Sutro Baths, with a walk over to Lands End. We then met back up to head over to Marshall's Beach for sunset. This was not only one of my favorite engagement sessions ever, it was also the most gorgeous sunsets I've ever had for a photoshoot!

That's not all, check out the bottom of the post for a surprise ending!

After the engagement session I was also able to go out to Golden Gate National Recreation Area to grab some landscapes. 

There I was on the side of the road taking cityscapes of downtown San Francisco. A couple had spotted my camera equipment and they end up starting a conversation. It turns out they had just got married at city hall earlier that day! They asked if I could take a photo of the two of them, and we ended up with this beautiful portrait of them silhouetted against the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Fran Skyline!

Olympic Peninsula Engagement - Caitlin and Chance

It's finally here! The first couple to win the adventurous engagement giveaway is up! Caitlin and Chance grew up on the Olympic Peninsula so we wanted to find a location that incorporated everything they love about the Pacific Northwest, the rainforest, the scenery, the water, mountains and everything inbetween. Somewhere along the way I saw some photos of Lake Cushman and as soon as I saw this area of Olympic National Park I was blown away and I knew it would be perfect!

We couldn't have been any luckier! The weather was absolutely perfect, and there was barely a crowd especially for a warm sunny Saturday.

Robyn & TJ - Rialto Beach

So I'll just get this out there in the open, I am the worst about blogging! I dread it, it takes me forever to pick out my favorite images. Plus I've been a little busy, preparing for my own wedding and I've even managed to get married since my last post! 

Enough about me, let's talk about these two incredible people. Robyn and TJ are not just your everyday couple. I actually worked for Robyn right out of college and we've been arguing about all things photography ever since, in a loving way of course! But since there anniversary lined up with a trip to Seattle I convinced them to come out to Rialto Beach on the Washington coast with me.
